Tom Hardy has reportedly been cast as the next James Bond !!
Though no official word has been given yet, now the Vulcan Reporter has claimed to have heard the news all the way back in June, claiming that Tom Hardy was offered the part following a successful audition.
Hardy, 43, has plenty of experience with high-octane, action-packed movies having starred in Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015.
The report goes on to claim that Hardy was initially due to be announced as the new Bond in November – the same month No Time To Die is set to be released – however, the announcement may be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Back in 2018, Pierce Brosnan, who played Bond between 1994 and 2005, told the Daily Mail he believed Hardy is the right actor for this role.
The ‘GoldenEye’ actor said: “Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond, he’s very physical, he looks lethal, you genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man,”
Brosnan, 67, added: “He’s complained about doing the part because he’s put himself through a lot physically, but he will do the next movie, and then I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond.’’ He continued “I’d be happy to see him do it, you need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it, that’s what makes Bond.”
